"One of the foremost artists working today, Lucian Freud had redefined portraiture and the nude through his frank scrutiny of the human form. Although he is best known as a painter, etching is integral to Freud's practice. This volume accompanies a major Museum of Modern Art exhibition presenting the full scope of Freud's etchings, along with a critical selection of related paintings and drawings. Organized by Starr Figura, Lucian Freud: The Painter's Etchings includes seventy etchings - from the artist's rare early experiments of the 1940s to the increasingly complex compositions he has created since rediscovering the medium in the early 1980s - juxtaposed with some twenty-two paintings and seven drawings. Figura's essay in this catalogue examines the dramatic dialogue among mediums in Freud's practice, and explores the crucial cross-pollinating relationship between his etchings and his works on canvas. Pared down to essentials of line, often depicting figures cropped or isolated against empty backgrounds, Freud's prints achieve a startling degree of psychological tension and formal abstraction. Etching is here revealed as a medium uniquely suited to Freud's distinct artistic goals."--Jacket

Frank Auerbach by William Feaver( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the most comprehensive publication to date and the only book in print on the work of Frank Auerbach, a painter who in recent years has become one of the preeminent artists of our age, widely admired for his vivid, impulsive, depictions of the world around him." "Auerbach, who was born in Berlin in 1931 and came to Britain when he was eight, paints, repeatedly, people he knows well and places he is familiar with. His drawings and paintings are strikingly immediate; their impact has urgency; they relate in various ways as much to certain preferred Old Masters as to the contemporary artists with whom he tends to be associated, notably Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud." "The book is definitive, featuring as it does 200 color plates together with a separate reference section comprising around 1,000 images-many of them not previously reproduced."--Jacket

Lucian Freud on John Constable by Lucian Freud( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" 'All Constable's work is erotic in the true sense' says Lucian Freud in a conversation with William Feaver about what Constable's work means to him. This conversation took place while Freud was selecting work for the Constable exhibition shown at the Grand Palais, Paris, from October 2002-January 2003. Due to the huge success of the exhibition, the catalogue (in which Freud's conversation was published in French only) sold out during the run of the exhibition, and is now no onger in print. This conversation has never before been published in English, and the British Council is now making it available in its entirity, in English, in a beautifully designed hard-back book. Sixty-one full-colour illustrations of work by Constable and Freud accompany the conversation. Lucian Freud has made a new etching 'Elm Tree after Constable' specially for this book, which is featured in detail on the cover, and in full inside the book" -- Press release by British Council ([1] leaf ; 30 cm.), loosely inserted
